The Inuit Sled Dog International

The Inuit Sled Dog International (ISDI) is a consortium of enthusiasts whose goal is the preservation of this ancient arctic breed in its purest form as a working dog. The ISDI's efforts are concentrated on restoring the pure Inuit Dog to its native habitat. The ISDI's coordinators welcome to your comments and questions.

Baking: Dog Cookie Recipe
by Geneviève Montcombroux

Need a bribe, or ran out of food? These cookies will please your dogs. (They also keep well for long time.)

2 cups of corn flour (not to be confused with corn starch or cornmeal)
3 tablespoons of vegetable oil
2 eggs
two tablespoons of whole milk powder & water OR enough liquid milk to make a dough.
Mix together the corn flour, oil, eggs and milk powder, add water (or liquid milk if you are not using powder) slowly and mix until the dough can be formed into small balls without sticking to your fingers.

Place the small balls on a greased cookie sheet, flatten with a fork. Bake at 350°F for 25 minutes. Corn being yellow, they do not become golden like ordinary cookies. They should be well-cooked but not to the point they start turning brown. 

You can also press all the dough on the cookie sheet and score with a knife into small squares before cooking.

The cookies are somewhat brittle so don't make them too thin or they'll crumble, nor too thick or they won't cook properly.
